i've Wikified myself (it albiet briefly) -- isn't it time redinsect/kreig publishin'/molemusic/woweezowee/every single band in town does likewise?

Perhaps we could find ourselves a suitable image for the front page? Ideas? --GianPerrone 13:55, 5 April 2006 (BST)

With so many categories in big letters, it was looking unweildy, so I shrunk them all. Do you know how to change the pic on the left Gian? --Danduran 10:12, 6 April 2006 (BST)

Looks good, Dan. I might try bolding the headings. If it looks arse change it back. Chur. --Lemon 11:13, 6 April 2006 (BST)

Looks good. --Danduran 13:18, 6 April 2006 (BST)

Question: Are The Datsuns regarded as a Hamilton band or a Cambridge band? If so, then they seem out of place on a Hamilton music knowledge db unless perhaps we wanted to call this a Waikato Band Info/etc. wiki. --Matt 05:25, 10 April 2006 (BST)

Good question. Although I did orginal put "Hamilton and surrounding areas" on the band criteria... how far do you take it though? Up to everyone's discretion I guess. Did they play predominantly in Cambridge or Hamilton? --Lemon 05:48, 10 April 2006 (BST)

Also...the "Bands" title, it seems there are a few Htown solo artists out there that don't actually perform with any one but have produced releases. Not bands as such. i.e. J.Harry.Long, & Craig Williamson's Lamp of the Universe. Chur Irie

The Cambridge thing basically made good press, considering how oppressive and dinky the town is. Apart from a couple of talent quests and Rockquest-criteria-fulfilling 20c lunchtime shows in the school hall, Trinket didn't really play in Cambridge. Although they're all 'from' the town, I seem to recall the band played its early 'local' shows at Hamilton venues, and really found its feet while the members were split between Leamington, Hamilton East and Auckland. I think defining where a band is 'from' is very much a matter of feel or identity. (see also: Mi-Sex, Dragon, it could even be easily argued Split Enz were an Auckland band)-- petra (can't be arsed logging in, sorry)

They def fit here. As Petra said, they played almost all thier shows here; played their initial release parties here; entered battle of the bands competitions here; and some at least lived here at the time. They've probably had more influence and impact on Htown's music scene than Cambridge's :p --Danduran 08:52, 12 April 2006 (BST)

cue 'what music scene' jibes --Petrajane

This is heavily rock-centric. should we do something to accomodate Classical, Jazz, operatic stuff, and get out and make these groups aware of this resource? The HCAC is onto it and spreading the word.

Big ups to thedugganaught, much appreciated and keep it up. -moonjuicehealy
